Just like commander Vimes, I'm always rooting for abject failure by England, just so I can sit back and witness the backlash.
Other than that, seeing my country's Oranje team make a complete mess of things is a secret cherish as well. Although I'd be equally satisfied with a seven-match clean sweep. Just not a bleak out-in-the-QF's-nothing-much tourney, please, 'mkay?
I hate the idea that Brazil can get anywhere near the final with at least three players needing a Zimmer frame, so it'd be nice to see them go out against the Czechs in the second round.

I do like their team though. So in many ways I want them to do well, but just for some of the English people and the English media I want them to flop
It's always fun to see Argentina choke as well.

Germany, France, Italy, Argentina. No particular order. I wouldn't mind Australia getting through to the last 16 then getting humiliatingly trounced - but it's unlikely because of who they're likely to face..

Worst footballing nation in the history of the game, no idea how they rigged the FIFA standings to be 5th in the world pre world cup.
I hope they get belted ten nil every game, and I hope they never get to a world cup final stage again.

"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."

Italy and Germany
I always find Spains demise rather amusing although in Korea it was very unfair so I wont be willing them to fail.
I know a lot of people dislike Argentina but they play really good Football so i cant really will them to total failure. As for Brazil how could anyone dislike them?
Italy, Germany, Brazil and Argentina.
